Our built-in apps and your own resources can be bookmarked for your clients, and this will help you prepare ahead of time for the online session and save you time during your live online session as all planned activities will be ready to use right away in session.
This article will review how to bookmark resources, delete them from your bookmark list, and present all your bookmarked activities/resources during your live session.
Note: To prepare activities and resources for your session, you must first upload your own resources and schedule the session on the calendar. Preparing ahead of the session is optional. You don’t have to bookmark any activities or resources ahead of time, and you will still have access to all activities and resources during your online session.
Note: You can keep all bookmarked resources as long as you wish under Bookmarks and re-use them with the client for future sessions.

Special Considerations for Group
If you have clients on your caseload who you always or only see for group sessions, you can bookmark resources for each client in a group by an opening scheduled group session and following the above directions; however, you need additional steps to take when preparing for the group.
- When bookmarking PDFs for each client in the group- make sure to select the client's name above the actual PDF. For example, if you have a group session with Adam and Kate, Adam's name will show in blue, indicating that this is the client you bookmark for. To move to Kate- click on the name Kate, so the box turns blue and then on the green button Bookmark.
- When bookmarking YouTube videos for each client in the group- make sure to select the client's name at the video pop-up box. Most clinicians tend to bookmark the same video for all clients in a group.
- When bookmarking apps for each client in a group- first click on the green bag next to the activity title of the app, e.g., Listening level 1, then click on the actual title of the app activity (e.g., Listening level 1) and then on the blue button Next. This will refresh the page, and the name of the second client will show above the list. Bookmark all the app activities for the second client.
Note: When you connect with all your clients in a group, you can click on Bookmarks and select each name to pull all bookmarked activities for each client. Please note that going back to Bookmarks during group sessions will not keep track of the activity pages – it will reset each activity.
